    Good luck with that!
    I only know about...

    Crepas L’Ocean


    Borealis Scorpionfish
    (Similar handset, different crown)


    Triton
    (several designs and “if you have to ask”... $$$$$)

    It's expensive but probably not overpriced (and yeah good luck with building your own :D).

    The Triton Subphotique is also a really cool but not cheap alternative (and so is the H2o homage released recently).

    The Borealis Scorpionfish (though the crown is placed at 3) and the Crepas L'ócean are decent and cheaper alternatives. But I want to mention that the case despite it's humble dimensions on paper (I think 41,5mm) needs a fairly large wrist to be worn properly. The case and the lugs are very straight which can look weird on small wrists.

    Maranez Kata is another. I’ve owned the Maranez and the Crepas versions. The Crepas was good but you’ll struggle to find one. In saying that I now have a ZRC and can tell you that’s it is well worth the money. If you can ever manage to get one make sure you get it on the bracelet.
    I reckon the H2O version isn’t half bad too.

    the 'North adventure' model was on kickstarter, I think,
    they kept adding goodies to it, even came around to offering the bracelet (came on a two piece nato originally, I think),
    and lowering the price of entry,
    they got to selling at buck under 1k, if I remember correctly.

    I don't know what your budget is,
    but any alternatives are either long gone or similarly priced/ more expensive,
    if you're not desperate for it,
    I'd say wait a year or so, save up, fill ZRC's inbox with travelling suggestions, and it just might happen
